I have struggled with my weight my whole life and I will be damned if it will get the best of me. I have never been called "skinny" and let's face it, every fat girl just wants someone to look at her and think in their mind "damn that girl is HOT." At the end of this weight loss journey I will be hot AND healthy. At age 16 I was diagnosed with Diabetes and have been trying to manage that disease ever since. I am hoping that with this weight loss that disease will be in control or even gone.
